Default Joey Galloway...

Galloway will be in Pittsburgh for a visit with the Steelers on Monday. Anyone think he would be a good replacement for the Nate Washington spot for a year at least? He's pretty old but still fast as hell...

REALLY?

He's definitely slippery, even as an older guy.

he put up numbers that blew away nate just 2 seasons ago. last year he had 13 catches. if he's healthy he is an upgrade that probably comes cheaper than nates old contract and is worth a look-see.

i would like holt better but this could be good.

Nope - not as a replacement for Nate, but maybe as a fill-in until Sweed and whoever the Steelers might draft this season come into their own (which I believe Sweed could very well do this season). Though he's been with a less than stellar team over the past couple of seasons (TB), I think Joey has slowed down some and is now a bit more injury prone than he was earlier in his career. If he'll sign a short term contract for vet minimum, why not?

If we can get him for roughly the same amount we paid Nate last year ... I'd be glad to see this happen. With the exception of last year with the injury, it seems like he's had some of the best seasons of his pro career in the past few years. If he can do that again, he'd be a bargain.

Where is this being reported? The only news on Galloway is that New England and Buffalo have interviewed him.

I don't want him, he'll bring us nothing except for good insurance

I heard it from a buddy of mine who works for the Bucs and is tight with Galloway...that he definitely has a visit set up with the Steelers for this Monday. My buddy called to tell me this today because he knows I'm a Steeler fan and would be interested to know about it...so trust me its credible! It just hasn't been widely reported yet.

Personally I think he would be a good 1-yr fit for the Steelers, he is a deep ball threat just like Nate was, only Joey has better hands and is faster!
